Giving Attention To The 22 Standing Campaign

The 22 Standing Campaign –  represented by retired veteran Jim Batchelor of Cooper –  is raising awareness for the 22 veterans across the country a day that take their own lives as a result of wounds physical or mental sustained in war. 22 a day is 22 too many.

Veterans and supporters across the country are going to be standing to give a voice to those who feel they no longer have theirs. The Coalitions to Salute America’s Heroes hopes to raise $22,000 for Veteran outreach in 22 days from Oct. 21 to Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

The Challenge – Go live on Facebook and stand in silent solidarity for our Veterans towards the flag they fought to defend for two minutes and 22 seconds. Help to raise our brothers and sisters up by visiting http://app.mobilecause.com/f/1kcu/n  and donate $22.
